Featured at this museum are two interlocking towers that have been saved: Haley Tower and Spring Hill Tower. Once a common sight along US railroads, these towers are a dying breed, and precious few of them have been preserved.Use our Terre Haute vacation planning app to arrange your visit to Wabash Valley Railroader's Museum and other attractions in Terre Haute.
In addition to the two towers the museum is home to a restored 1914 vintage PRR N6b cabin car, a 1890's Vandalia Railroad depot, a GE 45 ton switcher, WWII Pullman Troop Sleeper, Conrail N21 caboose and a Big Four railroad crossing watchman's shanty.
